    Hi everyone,

    Due to a considerable amount of post-launch meetings meetings, we have to slightly delay the beginning of this AMA. We will provide you more information tomorrow about a revised timeline. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Thanks for your questions. IMX586 is a sensor that we have polished for more than two years. We continue to develop the potential of this sensor to optimize its clarity and color performance. This time on OnePlus 8T, we have further added AI algorithms to optimize the overall picture quality.

    We know that many users are care about the improvement in camera. Nightscape mode has become the highlight function of OnePlus cameras, and it supports two viewing angles, main camera and ultra-wide angle. On OnePlus 8T, we optimized the performance of the Nightscape algorithm so that it can also run in Photo mode. Therefore, the Nightscape algorithm will now be intelligently activated in Photo mode to obtain clear night scene photos, and the experience is still fast and smooth.

    Hi LuigiMario, Video Nightscape relies on the seamless cooperation of sensor performance, software algorithms and Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 to achieve the goal of improving brightness, clarity and color performance on the video. We will evaluate the feasibility of the Video Nightscape algorithm on older models, and you can pay attention to subsequent system announcements. Thank you!

    I'm sorry they look too alike for you to confuse them. The upper one is a color temperature sensor, and the lower one is a dual-color temperature flash.

    That’s a good question. We found out that many others OEM like to promote the computational photography, although consumers or reviewers cannot distinguish what improvements the computational photography has brought. However, OnePlus also uses many AI algorithms to recognize images, segment images and optimize image processing. For example, Focus Tracking function uses AI algorithms to identify and track objects to achieve the effect of focusing.

    Through research, we found that most users enjoy the shock of drum beats, and we hope to bring good bass to users.

    These are two different types of products, one is a semi-in-ear headset, which brings better calls and daily experience. Another one is in-ear headphones, which brings a better noise reduction experience. We hope everyone will be satisfied with both products. Buds Z hopes that more people can enjoy the burden-free feeling of true wireless headphones.

    The flat panel does not have much influence on the software level. However, as the screen continues to upgrade, we have put a lot of effort on the combination of software and hardware, in order to bring users fast & smooth experience.

    Personally, I am most excited about AOD feature. Not only because it realizes the idea that user voted in the IDEAS activities, but also because it has such beautiful and interesting display forms as Canvas, Insight, and Bitmoji.

    @Winkey W. Hi, hope you're doing well.
    In the recent OnePlus 8T software update we saw Horizon light make its way into 8T.
    Why did you include Horizon light into flat display while it was said it is exclusive for curved screens?

    I recently upgraded my oneplus 6 to 8t and it was good choice on phone except the camera. Yes the Sony imx586 48 MP is better than oneplus 6 20 MP camera but if we could have had 8 MP telephoto lens instead of 5MP & 2MP mono chrome sensor would have been great.

    I have been doing some initial camera comparisons with 8 and 8t and the 8's 2mp super marco takes better pics than the 8t's 5mp. 8t's 5MP takes noisy macro photos.

    I also noticed the 8's ultra wide picture has more wider view than 8t.

    That's really good point,
    It would be great if the Guests ignore those edited posts as well.
